4 Boiler System Installation Tips


The installation of a new boiler system is a big decision for any household. Not only is boiler system installation a significant financial investment, but it can also affect how comfortable you feel in your home. Here are a few tips that can help you to avoid common boiler system installation tips and end up with a new water heating system that you feel happy with.

1. Choose an Installer

When it comes to boiler system installation, it is essential to go with an installation company that you can trust. Boilers that have not been installed correctly can be dangerous, posing a risk of gas leaks, carbon monoxide production and excessive pressure build-up leading to hot water leaks. Check reviews and testimonials from previous customers before agreeing to hire any boiler installation service, or ask your friends or family members for a personal recommendation.

2. Select a Suitable Boiler System

A good boiler company should help you to choose a new boiler system that meets your needs. Always ask them to explain the reasoning behind their recommendations. The best boiler system for your home must be the correct size for your household and be able to produce enough hot water to match your lifestyle. It is also a good idea to select a boiler system from a brand that has a good reputation for reliability, in order to minimise future repair costs.

3. Get Ready for Installation Day

When contractors come to install your new boiler system, they will want to switch off the supply of water for a period of time. If you intend to stay in the home while they are working, ensure you have filled some bottles with water, so you can continue to wash hands and drink.

Boiler system installation contractors need space in which to install the new system. Move your personal possessions out of the area near the boiler so they do not have to waste time on clearing a space for themselves.

4. Familiarise Yourself With the New System

Be sure to ask the boiler installers how the new boiler system works. They can demonstrate how to start the boiler, change the settings and what to do if it is not working how you expect. Do not be afraid to ask questions or ask for them to repeat instructions if you do not understand. You might like to write down instructions if you don't think you will remember.

Heating and Cooling Your Home: A Guide

Howdy! I'm Hank and I am writing this blog so I can give you the lowdown on the cheapest and most effective ways you can heat or cool your home. I'm not a trained HVAC contractor but my brother is. Last year, I called up my brother and asked him to drive over and install a new HVAC system in my property. The old system wasn't cooling or warming my house and it was making a strange noise. During the installation, my brother gave me lots of great advice and explained exactly what he was doing at each step. I hope you find this information useful.
